  1. Unable to format my system from boot


    I have a Lenovo IdeaPad 320 in which I initiated the format from Boot process but when I format the c drive it showed that the windows cannot install on this drive. After that I removed all the extra partition which were showing such as system reserved etc. Excluding the other primary partitions I have. But still it is showing that windows cannot install on this drive..

    Please help.. I don't want to delete all those partitions bcoz I don't have any backup of it and it nearly of 700gb storage.

    :)

  2. Unable to boot the computer.

    Hi Samid,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    Before we proceed, we would require more information to assist you further.


    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    I suggest you check if you are able to boot into Windows Recovery Environment using installation media. Follow the steps provided below and check.

      • Insert the installation USB and boot Windows 10 from it.
      • In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the ‘language to install’, ‘Time and currency format’ and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.
      • Click on ‘Repair your computer’ and select ‘Troubleshoot’.
    Check if you are able to boot to this window. If you are unable to boot to this window, I suggest you to contact the manufacturer and check.

    Hope this information is helpful. Reply us with this information to assist you further.

    Thank you.

    Formatting a dual boot system with windows 10 and ubuntu

    Hi,

    In Windows 10, you can easily format a hard drive or a partition by accessing Computer Management. For us to assist you, we suggest that you follow the steps listed below:

    • Press the Start button.
    • Type Computer Management.
    • On the left side, click on Disk Management under Storage.
    • Locate the drive that you want to format.
    • Once located, right-click on the drive and choose Format.

    If the hard drive has not been formatted with the steps that we have provided above, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer of your hard drive. Some hard drive requires a software that you'll need to use just to format it.

    Let us know how it goes and if you need further assistance, feel free to post back.

    Unable to format my system from boot

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!
